Jeff Davis’ post-Teen Wolf project Let the Right One In has cast another major role, tapping someone from Leonardo DiCaprio’s The Revenant.
Last week, we found out that Benjamin Wadsworth was cast as Henry and Thomas Kretschmann was cast as Inspector Eriksson.
Now, The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Kristoffer Joner has joined the TNT drama.
According to THR, “Joner will play the series regular role of Matheus Volk, Eli’s protector and enabler, the sad man who keeps her well-supplied with fresh blood. He’s been doing this feral work for 10 years, and he’s gotten very good indeed at trapping his victims, exsanguinating them, and staying one step ahead of the law. Weary and cold, Matheus is just sick enough of this life to get sloppy for one brief moment.”
The story “follows [a] boy and female vampire, who lives in secrecy with her mysterious guardian. When a series of strange murders pops up in their small Vermont town, it attracts the attention of a federal marshal with a mysterious past of his own.”
Jeff Davis wrote the script for the pilot, which will be directed by Doctor Who and Happy Valley‘s Euros Lyn. Davis serves as executive producer with Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements of Tomorrow Studios and Simon Oakes of Hammer Films.
Let the Right One In is a TV adaptation of the Swedish bestselling novel by John Ajvide Lindqvist, which was previously made into a movie, twice — first in Sweden, and later in America, re-titled Let Me In.
